The newest Rune Factory, for the Wii and PS3 is out today. Tides of Destiny takes place on an island, and will allow players to travel the open seas in search of adventure, enemies and plots of farmable land. Tides will cost $39.99 for the Wii and 49.99 for the PS3, which is a nice change from the usual $59.99.
I've never played a Rune Factory game on anything but the DS, so this should be an interesting experience and one I am looking forward to. The story sounds interesting and I've always been a fan of the two genres that this series combines. Hopefully the added element of seafaring exploration will bring even more to a franchise that already has a lot going for it.
